    And for that example, this was the final effect. All paint is new on top of fresh metal work.

    I think I figured out what happened to first-gear last weekend...
    Looks like I’ll be rebuilding the transmission with some new gears.

    It also gave me a chance to tie up some other loose ends on the chassis, apply some stain to the floors, and add some side skirts... I’m kinda digging on the new look.

  14. Might want to check. I'm pretty sure they're requiring a roll bar now.
